What is Capitalization?
Capitalization is the writing of a word with its first letter in uppercase and the remaining letters in lowercase. It has 7 rules to follow. We have studied and practiced capitalization rule #1 in the previous worksheet. Let us now learn about capitalization rule 2.
Capitalization Rule # 2
Capitalize names and other proper nouns–Always capitalize the names of a person, place, or things which are basically proper nouns.
The names of cities, countries, and companies are proper nouns, so they should also be capitalized.

- Rohit and Shaily met at Heena’s house.
- We are going to Singapore next week.
Ronaldo, Rohit, Shaily, Heena, and Singapore are in the capital because they are the names of a person or place.
